The Levitra I took was from sample packs given to me by my doctor. They are 10mg. He told me I could try cutting them in half. I'm sure my next move would be to see what they do for me at 10mg. I like the idea of being able to take the Levitra after having a few drinks without worrying. Still, if it doesn't work any better than what I experienced the other day...then it's a bust and I will need to move on to Cialis or back to Viagra. I took the whole 10mg sample of Levitra...but with one half first...and then the other half about 40 minutes later. The results were not so great. Strange...because I expected to be impressed!

Years ago I tried Viagra....I remember sitting in a hot tub...usually and erection killer for me...and found myself getting aroused. That's when I knew Viagra worked! Still, the facial flushing, congested sinuses and headache were enough to wean me off of the Viagra. I really only needed Viagra to help with performance anxiety. Interestingly enough...the anxiety is back and in rare form! So...I will give Levitra another try. Has anyone else had similar results with Levitra? Is it possible that it just doesn't work as well for me? This would be surprising since I've read that it targets and inhibits the erection killing substance within your body more specifically than with Viagra.

Really would like to hear from people who have tried both! Thanks!
The 10 mg Levitra is the equivalent of 50 mg of Viagra; 20 mg is the strongest dose of Levitra. Take the whole pill and as instructed in previous posts, empty stomach and wait an hour. Like the Cialis commercial says, " Do not drink alcohol in excess will taking the product."

I have not tried Viagra yet but the Levitra works well for me with no side effects.
Thanks for the replies! I will give the Levitra another try. I may just have to go back to the Viagra and give it another try? Perhaps the rock cutter is what I'm looking for and missing. I'm thinking a half dose of Viagra may be better for me than the Levitra? The big question is...do you want less intensity and less facial flush...or more intensity and more facial flush? I need to be fair to Levitra and give it another go at a full 10mg dose. I will try on an empty stomach and see what happens at the one hour mark. If I feel the numbness...lack of intensity...then less facial flushing will be of little consolation. Hmm...now I wonder about Cialis...if it is more like Levitra...or more like Viagra? In the next day or so I will try the Levitra and report back. Thanks again!
I usaully take 10mg. I took 20mg once and got the diamond cutter but also felt like I was going to have a heart attack. I could actually feel my heart beating in my neck. Scary. I'll stick to 10mg. I aslo tried Cialis . I really like this one too. It feels the same as Levitra to me. It is good to take over the weekend. This way you do not have to plan sex. You can be spontanius all weekend and not have to worry about ED problems.

Thank you for the reply SufferingEd. I must say...diamond cutter is a rather reasuring feeling. Especially since I no longer have a steady and will be trying to use condoms. They always kill it for me. I'm not sure taking one of these pills will help...but rock cutter makes me think it would be more possible. I would be tempted to try 20mg of Levitra to see if it did for me similar to what Viagra did...but the side effects would probably be similar...or maybe worse according to your account. One thing I like about trying Cialis is that people are reporting that they felt more natural on it. With Levitra...and my staggered dose of 5mg and then 5mg more 40 minutes later was not so pleasant. I didn't have facial flushing...and only the slightest of headache...but felt kind of like my penis was on the numb side...an not necessarily as good as with a normal dose of good porn. My lady and I will certainly do something soon. I feel the pressure coming...and not in a good way. In fact...I'm mortified. I actually consider myself a passionate man...no one loves the ladies more than I do! My mind is an overactive playground! But...I just don't have the follow through. Viagra helped in the past...but there's this big red sign on your face! There never is an easy way is there? So...today I will ask my doctor if having a sample of Cialis and Viagra will do. Later tonight I will try Levitra again...the full 10mg at one time. Just to make sure I give it the opportunity. I do like that I can take it after drinking alcohol...since the alcohol can drop the inhibitions a little...and you still have assistance. Anyway, I appreciate the response. Next stop after Levitra....Cialis! I Will report back! :p
Okay guys...I'm in business! I just picked up samples of Viagra and Cialis from my doctor. So...I will try the full 10mg of Levitra again...then I will try Cialis...not sure what the dosage is yet...and then I will go back and give Viagra a try. I think that Viagra was so strong for me in the past...and I think it was 50mg...that I may split it in two and try 25 mg. It's a smorgashborg of ED pills! LOL So...I will see what suits me best. If the Levitra is no worse on symptoms and works better with the full 10mg...I will be in business. Same can be said for Cialis...but might have the added bonus of feeling more natural and lasting longer...as reported by others. If not...there's always Viagra...full of side effects but quite effective. I will gunea pig myself for the next week or so to see what works best for me...and perhaps it will help others when I come back to report the results. Thank you for the posts! :D
Thanks Suzy...I will keep that in mind! I am going to try the other two next...but you have me curious about what Levitra at 20mg would be like. Btw...has your husband tried Viagra or Cialis?
Ed,

Is there anyway to sneak a dose of Cialis? I thought it was supposed take the planning part out of the equation.
Good luck getting your Low T and other issues in check. My ED issues started 8 months ago. The ED was directly related to high blood pressure. I never thought in my lifetime that I would need medication for this. Since I got the HBP under control, I don't have to take performance enhancing drugs every time. I take a beta blocker (Toprol XL) for HBP that is notorious for causing ED but I have not had problems. Fortunately, I am more of a recreational user now but I remember having lack of confidence for a few months.

I will try to get a sample of both Cialis and Viagra when I go back to renew my 1 year limit of filling my prescription.
take paxil and cialis...it will cure premature ejac and performance anxiety..go to your doc and get scrips..your wife doesn't even need to know about it...once you've been on paxil for a while, you'll be able to taper off and will be good to go on your own..you will have built up your confidence and perform anxiety and premature ejac will never cross your mind again...it's like riding a bike
well, it may slow it down some, but will definitely not kill it...if you are wacking off, stop that...paxil and cialis or viagra or levitra WILL solve your problem...once you have a few successes, then you can gradually taper off....good luck...
No he hasnt tried viagra or cialis,but when we see the doc next were going to get some samples of them also.Will post our results when we get,and use them.Take care.
Just wanted to post a thought about my most recent experience with Levitra. I took the whole 10mg as previously posted. This time I think my result was better. Not like the Viagra...but pretty good. But what happened the next day was a bit surprising. I actually felt as though it was still in my system. I don't even think this is possible but actually felt like I had a residual effect. Not exactly the effect of getting an erection easily...but more easily keeping one. I also felt a little more time was needed to build to climax. This is typical for me. I have long refractory periods. Sometimes I'm ready again the next day..and sometimes I have to wait about 4 days before I feel "ready" again. If I make it a full 5 or 6 days I start feeling a more heightened sense of need. If I go to climax two days in a row...I usually have my desire knocked down for about 5 days. Strange! I've always felt this was strange! I wish I could reduce the refractory time needed to feel a full recharge. Anyway, my second day felt better after taking the Levitra...but this is just my opinion...imagined...or not. I will take the Cialis in the next few days and then report on those results. Should be interesting. I will be sure to make close observations to compare to the Levitra. Levitra does the trick. Is it the best? Hmm...not sure. Since you can take with food and after alcohol...I think it is pretty good. And the side effects...at least at 10 mg seem slight. Will get back here soon! :)
Andiron, you may go to doc and have your prolactin tested. If prolactin is high it can kill your sex drive. Basically after you orgasim, you prolactin will rise. This is why when we are younger we can go all night but as we get older our drive declines once we orgasim. If you do not want to go to doc yet try takeing maca root or chasteberry. I heard these supplements can lower porlcatin. I've used levtira before and woke up the next morning with a pretty hard erection compered to normal. I think it can acutally stay in your system longer than what they say. They are just being cautious. I've also heard Cialis can actually stay in your system for up tp 72 hrs. I think the companies put 4hrs and 36 hrs on these because that is when it is best. Good luck.
Thanks Ed...I will look for those supplements and give em a try! I took Cialis today! It was interesting trying to cut the 20mg in half! When I used the pill cutter...half of the pill crumbled! I dumped the crumbled part into my mouth and waited. About 20 minutes later I noticed some difference in feeling. I can say that the Cialis actually surprised me a little. I think it worked? LOL Maybe I need a stronger dose...or maybe it is just right!? Not sure. I can say that I've already climaxed once...and have had more incidences of erections or partial erections today with lustful thoughts that arise. So...the stuff must be working...albeit subtly! I have not experienced flushing or headache. Would this stuff work when I'm in an anxious performance situation. Don't know. I think I will give it a few days and then try the full 20mg. I read that the good starting point for most men was 10mg. A crumbled and very slightly less than half seems to do the trick....but I want to test the full 20. I'm trying to test the waters now...before the big peformance! So...I will report on any stirrings in the next day or two...and then will go on to the full dose. I figure that next weekend will have me trying 25mg of Viagra. At this point I can say that Levitra at 10mg worked pretty well for me. Maybe Levitra at the higher dose would be better? So far Cialis is good! Which would take my vote now...not sure...but have a hunch that Cialis will get the vote when I up the dose! I'll be back....
Okay...so I tried Cialis. Turns out that it still was very low on side effects for me. This time the response seemed more subtle. Strange since I took the whole 20mg at once. Still, it does work. The funny thing about Cialis is that it really does require stimulation and sexual excitement. There seems to be no stirring as with the Viagra. Even Levitra convinced me that I was ready to go because there was the start of a flush like feeling. So...next I will try half of a Viagra to see what kind of kick in the pants that gives to me! Then I will decide. I think at this point I will probably be a Cialis user. I would say that I have had 3 good days where I felt more predisposed to having wood! My next post will be a new thread about prolactin and lowering the refractory period. That seems to be the next big thing to tackle. Will be back after the Viagra! :) Cheers!
I am glad to hear about the low to no side effects from Cialis. I need to get a sample from the doctor's office.

HI, just wanted to chime in and let you know that cialis is more subtle with me as well... Also, I dont get the flushing that I get with viagra... The funny thing was that when I first tried it, it did nothing for me even thouigh I took the 20. My Dr advised me to take it at least 4 to 5 times before I gave up on it and it really atarted working around the fifth time. Now i take a 10 mg twict a week and I'm good to go... Sometimes I even drop to a 5 ....

Again, no side effects except an occasional back pain... Havent had the stuffy nose ever since I started taking the 10...

Good luck ...
